Briella's Nursery

Last week the yellow & grey chevron curtains & sheets I bought came. I was excited to get them in the nursery & hold them up to the freshly painted grey walls. After doing so, I realized yellow & grey was not the main colors I was wanting. So together Brian & I also ruled out the chevron striped wall. I then spent the next 2 days doing nothing but scouring the internet for a theme I liked that went with grey, except Brian decided to make that extremely difficult. He said the room can have NO pink in it!! He says Aubrey's room is over the top girly with a chandelier & pink everything, so he wanted this room to be more neutral. So here is a picture of the bedding we ended up buying. I have bought some pale aqua feminine accents to go on the walls.

Within a month of us finding out we were pregnant, we had already bought the furniture set off Craigslist. When I moved out of a crib (1985) my parents purchased me a French Provincial bedroom set. My mom has since repainted it & uses it in Aubrey's playroom at their house. I found the exact same set on Craigslist for $180! That included a wide dresser with mirror, chest, night stand & twin canopy bed. I am going to use the dresser with mirror & chest in the nursery. I have decided to paint both pieces pale aqua. I cannot wait to see them finished & in the nursery. I have included my inspiration picture for painting the dresser aqua.

When Briella is old enough to move to a big girl bed, we will use the canopy bed and plan on painting the whole set whatever color she chooses for her room :) Aubrey says that she already has the trademark on pink so lil sis will have to pick another color.
